[QUOTE=Seanzky;9347121]Thanks for the welcome and the advice. When I bought the Sakura Zero S yesterday, this hadn't been posted yet. I hope I didn't make the wrong choice. I've been YouTube'ing Sakura Zero S and the build reminds me of my one of my old Traxxas kits. I'm really looking into building a car with my own hands once again.
I'll be following the technical builds from these PDFs: [
Good find, setup sheets are always helpful. I'm sure the sakura will do great, and if I had been racing on cleaner surfaces I bet I'd have one of my own. The diff pulleys on these new belt cars are alot better than the old ones like my HPI Rally (bigger diameter and more contact area for belt), I was stripping out the plastic pulleys too fast but then again a 10x1 brushed D6 that I kept trued and tuned made more power than a 5700kv mamba. My main reason for going with shaft driven is the sandy/pebble-y parking lots we race at.
The sakura certainly looks neater than the Ofna
Just don't pull your hair out while waiting, and I'm sure you'll do well with the Sakura
